Bog oak & sandwich
(NB International postage has been delayed in recent years by Brexit, coronavirus, and other events outside of my control, and international orders may be subject to often very high import duties, so please bear that in mind when ordering.)
This chunky general purpose kitchen knife was forged from high carbon W2 steel sandwiched between two pieces of mild steel and has a handle made from English bog oak. The bog oak has a check on one side but I’ve kept it as it looks kind of cool and anyway it’s otherwise a very nice piece of wood.
This knife combines a high degree of functionality, combined with heaps of character. Due to the natural, untreated nature of both high carbon steel and the handle material, this knife will patinate and change over time. Please see the care and guarantee section of my website before purchase.
The specifications are as follows, the distal taper and balance point can be seen in the last two photos;
Blade length; ca. 193mm
Blade height at heel; ca. 49mm
Handle length, including bolster; ca. 135mm
